Anjou de vin…or pears in wine compote

Screen shot 2012-12-02 at 7.03.05 PMThere must have been a sale on Bartenura Moscato wine, I tell you. You know that wine in the blue bottle with so little alcohol that Granola Baby can chug it without getting drunk? Well, we have loads of it.

The trouble with this wine, is that if you don’t use it all in one sitting, it loses it’s zing. We end up with a lot of half full bottles in the fridge.

No matter, because pears are now in season, and we put that leftover wine to good use.

This recipe will work with any leftover wine, but if you use something other than the sweet Moscato, I recommend adding your own sweetener. Honey, sugar or maple syrup (yum!) will do. Add a little and take a lick to see if it’s sweet enough.

Combine the pear slices, cinnamon and wine in a pot and cover and bring to a boil. Immediately turn down to a simmer and let simmer until pears are soft (at least 10 minutes). Serve warm.
